I'm planning to get a 65 gallon tank soon but I really want to do my research before I get into it. I'm looking to put discus inside the tank and I understand that they seem to live best in calmer waters so I was wondering what do you guys recommend as a good filter for a 65 gallon tank?

Seachem tidal, you can adjust the flow pretty low. Lower than any other HOB their size I’ve seen at least. Not to mention if for some reason the flow is still a little high, a quick baffle would easily fix it. Great filters!

Even the largest Seachem Tidal or Aquaclear will not really be enough for a 65 gallon tank. For best results you will need about 520gph to 650gph. Suggest you might look at 2 filters like 1 canister and 1 HOB. Might want to consider a 265 gph canister like 4 star rated Sunsun and Polar Aurora's on Amazon here:



And then a HOB for easy access for cleaning and adding possible chemical filtration like a Seachem Tidal 75 at 350gph or an Aquaclear 70 at 300gph.



These would work. And yes the Tidal you can adjust the flow from 100% to 20%.
